Cast into existential and financial destitution

quotesY“It has become commonplace to point out how the artists, perfectly aware of the limits and bondages of the previous system imposed upon them (and also aware of the ways to get around them) find their place in democracy, which does not only allow them a total freedom of expression but also casts them into a state of existential and financial destitution.”
